Plan a School Visit
School programs at the National Building Museum inspire students to examine the buildings, places, and structures around them. During these hands-on programs, which meet national standards of learning and integrate STEM themes, students use the design process as a way to identify problems and investigate solutions. They create plans, construct models, and think critically as they evaluate their final projects. By becoming city planners, engineers, designers, and architects during the programs, students begin to understand that their decisions can have a positive impact on the world around them.
Programs for PreK–9th grade student groups are 1.5 or 2 hours long and are offered at 10 or 10:30 am and at 12:30 pm Monday–Friday. Programs will be offered September 24, 2014 through June 12, 2015, except for federal holidays.
